Synopsis for "Oracle"
Barbara Gordon is in a panic - she has discovered that Ra's al Ghul has summoned his "Seven Men of Death" to move out against Vicki Vale, making her realize that he was the one who put out a bounty on her head. She hacks into the Insider's comm-link, much to his surprise, and lets him know that it's Ra's who was doing this. After confirming he has Vicki with him, he's quick to pull her away from a window, telling her that one misstep would mean the end for all of them. As he heads out, he asks for some of Barbara's "birds" to help distract the Seven Men - she chooses her back-ups: Batgirl, Man-Bat, Ragman, Manhunter, Hawk and Dove. As she does, she wonders if the Insider truly is Bruce, then reminisces to the time after she was paralyzed by the Joker. When Bruce came to see her, she attempted to drive him away with her self-wallowing. Instead Bruce tells her not to let this tragedy shape her life like his did. After months of training, she shows off her Clocktower Base.
Her thoughts are interrupted when Batgirl, Hawk and Dove contact her. Through simple hacking, she's able to lure the seven to the Birds' location, allowing Insider to escape with Vicki. However, one is able to stop them and, injured, Insider is force to make Vicki run. The Birds take down the Seven while the Insider defeats his attacker, learning that Ra's wants Vicki dead because he doesn't want Batman's legacy tainted by her reveal. Hearing that, Oracle lets slip that she's figured out the Insider is actually Bruce. She asks if Dick and Damien know, but he reveals they don't at the moment, and that now isn't the time.
Elsewhere, Vicki smashes her cell phone, realizing she might be traced. She finds a working pay phone and calls Alfred for help, only for another to appear, leaving Alfred to worry of her fate...
- No special notes.
In the beginning of the issue, Insider is shown surprised when Oracle contacts him through a certain channel. However, in Bruce Wayne: The Road Home: Commissioner Gordon #1, he was shown giving her a channel to contact him through. It could be possible that she used a channel different than the one he gave her.
